Gorgeous dry leaf. Pale green with silvery edges. The leaves feel soft to the touch and I can see and feel the fuzzy down on each leaf. The aroma is delicate and sweet, reminiscent of hay.
Sweet, smooth, light, refreshing! The sweetness reminds me of raw sugar cane. Hints of sweet apple and notes of melon. A very subtle vegetal note, barely there unless I slurp the sip to aerate the tea on the palate.
A superb Needle tea. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/08/21/silver-tip-white-tea-from-p-m-david-silva-sons/

I really love the caramel-y notes of this tea. It’s sweet and almost creamy. Lovely notes of malt. There is also a pleasant fruit note to this that is somewhat reminiscent of sweet berries without the tartness that is commonly associated with berry. I am even picking up on some notes of raw cacao.
Robust, rich and full-flavored are not words that I generally associate with Ceylon teas but this is an exceptional Ceylon. A bold and delicious tea!
A rather unusual Ceylon in that I picked up on some Darjeeling-esque notes. It has that light, crisp taste that I usually associate with a Darjeeling.
Sweet, notes of Eucalyptus, mint, cypress, woodsy, grape-y, hints of citrus and floral notes. Would make a lovely afternoon cup.

this is an outstanding Ceylon. It is rich and malty. It’s very Assam-like, actually. It has that bold flavor that I normally associate with an Assam. Although, it’s not quite as hefty as an Assam, this isn’t the tea I’d turn to first thing in the morning. But it has a really amazing flavor – I would be more than happy to be sipping on it as an Afternoon tea.
